Lovely place to visit, a short distance from the beach and amazing views of you get the chance to go up there. The gardens are beautiful and well kept, the exhibition centre is worth a look around, interesting to know the history of the theatre.

Went to see a play this week, the back drop is unbelievable. I also recommend going around the Minack without the show just to wonder onto the stage.

We sadly couldn’t get tickets for the performance, but spent a happy hour walking around this amazing place. The dedication and effort it took to build it are awe inspiring. The setting is dramatic and beautiful. Next time I will book in advance!

Wonderful afternoon at this fantastic place, don't miss the exhibition to learn how it was all achieved by the efforts and inspiration of one woman. Great play and acting, welcoming staff, unmissable experience.

The Minack season ends usually in October as this is an outdoor theatre. I don't think there is any shows in winter.

You can go in to the theatre all year but they stop performances in September due to the weather.
